RESEARCH THAT ADVANCES MEDICINE

  • #33 NIH Ranking

At the University of Minnesota Medical School, we’re leading the way to new treatments and methods of care.

Our research serves as an economic engine that drives Minnesota’s health industry. We develop new health technologies and we collaborate with Minnesota’s biomedical companies to bring these technologies to clinics and hospitals worldwide.

We are finding better and faster ways to translate our laboratory research into clinical trials for patients—the only path to new treatments and cures.
